Ok so for various reasons too dull to explain here (or a velociraptor attack if you’d prefer us to make something up) we had to postpone this week’s podcast for 24 hours. But to make up for that delay we tried extra hard and hope we’ve produced 23 minutes of art and design chat to knock your socks off (toenails if you’re reading this sockless like some sort of maverick).
There’s the usual mix of stuff we loved from the site this week, plus our take on news and issues from around the creative industries. Oh, and worth a listen for Liv’s weird broken spoon analogy and my pitch-perfectly pithy summation of S Club 7. Enjoy!
And here’s the links you may need:
From the site we discussed Beck’s new album which comprises of a set of illustrated song sheets published by the excellent folk at McSweeneys, Penjet, the printer which uses felt tips and Dalton Maag’s Rio 2016 typeface.
In this section we discussed the Design Museum’s 2013 programme which includes shows for Sir Paul Smith, Barber Osgerby and Dunne & Raby and then we had a chat about the responsibility sites like ours have towards the artists we publish (with some of the similar themes explored in this piece).
